From its roots as a modest homestead in the late 1780s, the Evergreen Heritage Center expanded into a plantation in the 1820s and evolved into a Victorian homestead in 1870s when Winfield Scott Trimble planted 13 varieties of evergreen trees and named the property Evergreen.
Evergreen is recognized by the Maryland Historical Trust (1976) and listed on the National Register of Historic Place (2015). Visitors may, by appointment, tour the Evergreen Mansion (now a museum) and Evergreen Barn with its original stone foundation, hand-hewn chestnut beams, and plantation-era farming implements. Visitors may hike the Evergreen Coal Trail, which was used to haul coal deep-mined on the property in the early 1900s.
